Del Toro with giant monsters vs giant robots!

here's the panel from Comic Con, minus the clips they showed.  here is a description of the robots:

Quote
Each Jaeger has two "riders," whose minds are connected into one that drives the machinery. The director said fans will get to see in the movie what happens when one pilot dies and the remaining one has to struggle to keep the robot going.

I'll be there on opening day.  I love that he can't make a film without Perlman.  All the great directors seem to find a group of actors that they feel comfortable with and then use over and over again.  Also...Idris Elba?  Damn good call.  The man's an actor's actor.

Sounds like Warner Bros. is literally forcing del Toro to convert his film to 3D.  

I know Guillermo has more than a little disdain for the studio system in Hollywood (see Mimic the Director's Cut for further info) so I wonder how long and how hard he'll fight this?

WANT!

Just me or is 2013 looking to be a potentially great year for big budget sci-fi? I'm expecting at least one will be a dud, but I was intrigued by all the trailers I've seen for these 4 so far...

Pacific Rim
After Earth
Star Trek Into Darkness
Oblivion

And I'm sure a few more movies will pop up as well. Just seems like a lot of potential goodness on it's way in 2013!

Winner.

I'm with Tilt. I like the idea of the movie, but I'm not the biggest del Toro fan. His movies have the most lackadaisical pacing and even when he's building to a big finish, I get no sense of tension at all. I'm holding out hope though. Remember, no one was impressed by the Man of Steel teaser and the internet asploded all over itself when the new one hit this week.

While I remain hopeful, it basically looked like a Transformers movie to me. I assume that's what the studio hopes for, that the masses will sign up for this the way they did for Transformers et al, and not the way they didn't sign up for Battleship or, say, that dreadful Godzilla movie a few years back.

It certainly has a prime summer movie slot so I assume the studio has confidence in it. Of course, I'd have said that about Green Lantern.  icon_razz

I'm not sure what you're talking about with Godzilla.  It grossed over $136 million in the States alone (almost $380 mil worldwide) in the late 90s.  I'd say audiences signed up for it just fine.

If you're talking about Godzilla 2000, you might be on to something, but I doubt you are.

If you like horror or fantasy movies, you should be.  del Toro has elevated almost everything he's done in those genres.   By all accounts, he's one of those rare filmmakers in this day and age who makes films because he LOVES telling stories.  He doesn't do it primarily for the paycheck or the fame (like a Bay or a Ratner).  I would have no trouble placing him in the same league as a Wes Anderson, a Paul Thomas Anderson or a Peter Jackson.

 Tongue  Sorry, my admiration for del Toro is showing.  I've been a fan of his work ever since I came across Cronos years ago.

What he's talking about is that it was terrible.

Yeah, I'm not getting the del Toro hate, either.  One guy, I guess okay, but two in a row?

He's making others up their game, too.

I don't like horror movies, so I couldn't comment on anything he's done in that genre.  I thought both Hellboy movies were boring as hell.  Pan's Labyrinth did nothing for me the first time I saw it, although I watched it again later and came away slightly more positive.   Blade 2 was completely unremarkable.

That's all I've seen from him, so maybe there's something I'm missing.
